Black Beauty by Lana Del Rey
Produced by Rick Nowels

All chords are played with 4 beats unless [specified in square brackets]. Chords 
are for the piano, just like in the song. However, these are the basic chords. The 
real song uses different chord inversions. Just experiment to see what sounds 
right to you and your voice.

I'm sure this would sound very nice on guitar too. Just transpose down 5 semitones 
and put a capo on the 5th fret to play easy guitar chords in the key of C.
 
Intro
F, Dm, Bb, F [2], C [2]

Verse
           F
I paint my nails black
         Dm                     Bb
I dye my hair a darker shade of brown
                             F [2]
Cause you like you like your women Spanish
      C [2]
Dark strong and proud

               F
And paint the sky black
            Dm
You said if you could have your way
              Bb
You'd make a night time all today
                F [2]        C [2]
So it'd fit the mood of your song
 

    Bb             Dm
And oh, what can I do?
    Bb              C
Nothing, my sparrow blue.
 

F              Am
Oh, what can I do?
        Bb                             Dm [3] C [1]
Life is beautiful but you don't have a clue.
F             Am
Sun and ocean blue.
       Bb                               Dm
The magnificence it don't make sense to you.
 

          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
 

            F
I paint the house black
           Dm
My wedding dress black leather too
    Bb
You have no room for light.
        F [2]   C [2]
Love is lost on you.

          F
I keep my lips red
               Dm
They seem like cherries in the spring
            Bb
Darling you can't let everything
        F [2] C [2]
Seem so dark blue
 

    Bb             Dm
And oh, what can I do?
            Bb                    C
To turn you on, or get through to you?


F              Am
Oh, what can I do?
        Bb                             Dm [3] C [1]
Life is beautiful but you don't have a clue.
F             Am
Sun and ocean blue.
       Bb                               Dm
The magnificence it don't make sense to you.
 

          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
 

          F   Dm
Black beauty, ah
          F   Dm
Black beauty, ah
          F   Dm
Black beauty, ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
          F
Black beauty, baby
          Dm
Black beauty, baby
 

F              Am
Oh, what can I do?
        Bb                             Dm [3] C [1]
Life is beautiful but you don't have a clue.
F             Am
Sun and ocean blue.
       Bb                               Dm
The magnificence it don't make sense to you.
 

          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.
          Bb  Dm
Black beauty, oh.

This is Moy (the person who made this tab.) Just wanted to say that during the chorus, the chords for "Oh what can I [do]/Sun and ocean [blue]" are wrong.

There are listed as Am on the original tab but they should actually be Dm. If you've transposed the chords, just remember that the replacement chord (the Dm on the original tab) is the second chord you play in the song! Sorry about the mistake. I didn't want to resubmit the chords.

Please support Lana Del Rey by buying her new album Ultraviolence in 2014!
